Initial brow shaping should be left in the hands of a pro. Left to your own devices, it’s easy to overpluck. “It’s best to go to a professional,” says brow expert Shokou Shahidi Rezvani, lead brow stylist at Thread Eyebrows in West Hollywood.

The best brows follow their natural brow shape, so don’t be tempted to copy a brow shape based on your preferences or the latest trend. “The original shape is the best shape for your face,” says Rezvani. “These days everyone wants arched eyebrows, arched brows don’t fit everyone’s face.”

If you must shape your brows in between professional visits, only tweeze the obvious hairs closer to the eyelid and avoid taking hairs from the top where it’s harder to determine if they will affect your overall brow shape. And beware of over-plucking! “If the eyebrow has been plucked too thin, it can take over a year to grow them back to their fullest,” says Rezvani.
